About the Village

Located mid-way between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, Neve Shalom/Wahat al-Salam is a community of 70 families soon to be 100, half Palestinian and half Jewish, all with Israeli citizenship. The village is democratically governed by elected committees.  The village's mission is to demonstrate that Jews and Palestinians can live together as equals.


Community Day in the village

During even the most difficult times in Israel, the residents of the village are committed to this ideal. Through their various departments and educational projects, they reach out to the surrounding communities, to encourage involvement in lectures, workshops, and classes that further the work of peace among Palestinians and Jews. They reach beyond their borders with the message that "Peace is Possible."
